When Hitler's aggression galvanized a true coalition to thwart the Third Reich's dark, imperial ambitions, it worked.
Unfortunately, the U.S. military and its NATO allies acted AS the aggressors in the Middle East. A very dangerous precedent was set in showing that Power need not account to the U.N or the Rule of Law.
No wonder that Israel follows by using inordinate muscle against the Palestinian State, and now its new ally Saudi Arabia does likewise to an impoverished people incapable of actually fighting back.
The U.S. under what MANY conceive as a False Flag trigger let loose on Iraq, unapologetically sends drones to murder civilians in Afghanistan, and plays a role in the destabilization of Libya, Syria, Yemen, and other Middle Eastern nations bludgeoned by those who operate on the atavistic premise that Might alone, makes right.
Millions of people around the world oppose the ways of militarism. This dis-ease, like a Cancer has crept into too many places and like a gigantic octopus, uses its tentacles to hold otherwise just nations, hostage.
